I was recently working on a project where .getTextExtent() would have come
handy, but like for others, it did not work for me. I dropped the issue at
that time, but have been thinking of trying to create an auto-size field off
the stage with the same text style parameters as the textInput component,
then copy characters (from the input component as they're typed) to the
auto-sized field, then measure the width of the auto-sized field. If the
width exceeds the maximum allowed pixel-width, then disallow further typing
into the component. I think it should work... has anyone tried this?

Hello,

i always use textfield.autoSize, and it works fine.
But you have to be carefull, to set the correct styles to the textfield, 
before measuring.
